maria doug meehan introduces us : to the family that's been making wachusett potato chips for 80 years. >> monstrous mounds of spuds arrive everyday to the wachusett potato chip company in fitchburg. how many potatoes are we talking about? >> right here about 51,000 pounds approximately. and that's just one trailer full. barry krysiek's family started this company seasonal demand, anywhere from 4 to 6 of these trailer loads will be dropped off in just one day. an intricate maze of machinery moves the potatoes through this building that once served as a jail housing civil war spies. on their way to becoming chips or sticks, excess water is first removed from the potatoes then , they're pealed before hitting the rotary slicers.
right off. >> 100ths of an inch can be the difference between chip styles. on this day those razor sharp blades were creating potato sticks. after achieving the perfected color and crispness the product is off to packing. nearly 1 million pounds of raw potatoes pass through here a week. whether it's regular, barbeque or sour cream and onion, they're bagged and bound for your local sub shop or corner convinence store. but this operation is now also nationwide after the utz company bought wachusett 3 years ago. sole provider of potato sticks for all of walmart 4700 stores. it's been a family business >> going all these years and it's good to see we keep on going. >> nothing goes to waste. that pure potato starch that is removed prior to slicing the potatoes is repurposed and used in things such as adhesive's,
ed: doug brought a bunch of potato chips back. we would love to eat them right here but they could not make it to tonight. they were eaten a long time ago. harvey: that is not a surprise. it was really cool this morning. 48 was the lowest in four month going back to may 15. we had many older spots than that like bedford down32 taunton was 34. it'll skies again as we have had created -- as we have had. we have increasing clouds on the way. there is a weather change that is coming. tonight will not be anywhere near as cool as it was last night around the region. we are at 62 in the wind has gone to the south-southwest.
it will drop back a little bit more and then the temperatures will study out. maybe inch out toward don. we have a band of rain that is breaking up. there is a front but i do expect some enhancement of the rain as it approaches us. the rain becomes -- air becomes more humid. that will move through tomorrow afternoon. the wet weather is tomorrow morning's commute and especially south of boston it could be lasting several hours longer. we get to 4:00 a.m. and the rain is west of worcester. getting to about six and they are in the boston area. add a couple of more hours and it is boston south. there can be some heavier downpours embedded in the rain. notice southeastern mass advocate them a still wet in the early afternoon. the weather gets better
could respond some that don't get used to it. because the wind is going to shift and start coming from the northeast by wednesday morning and that will bring some ocean clouds in with a cooler east and northeasterly wind and once that steps up to my looks like we will have that ocean wind for the rest of the week. i think will be -- we will be locked in with clouds most of the time wednesday through friday with some damp weather that could be ocean mist or a di out right now. high temperatures for tomorrow, somewhat brighter finish in most places. things do start to change after that as you can see. we are talking about the weather pattern that is going to get us a little bit stuck. we have a northeast wind and a disturbance in the ohio valley that is reluctant to move.
weekend. that is how it is looking. hope to see you later tonight. >> now, sportscenter 5. one minute drill. mike: we're speaking the truth in tonight's one minute drill. this is not a political statement about donkeys or elephants but instead about a workhorse. after 18 nba seasons, paul pierce announced today that this one will be his last. pierce goes down as a top 5 all time celtic. you might argue with my list which also includes havlicek, bird, and mchale. but the la native played 15 seasons in green and longevity helped his legacy. he is #2 in scoring to hondo, #2 in points per game to larry, #1 in 3 pointers made and we know he never saw a shot he didn't want to take or thought he couldn't make. but the numbers are just a part of the story. pierce was the captain, a leader, as emotional as you'll see you could feel his energy transcend the screen in big moments and he was the glue that held the team together for a
and when his personal numbers went down banner #17 arrived in 2008. as pierce said, he'll play one more year with doc's clippers, then ride into the sunset. here's wishing him the best along the way. ed: just the last 18 years were remarkable. they won the championship within four minutes of another. maria: we are counting down to tonight's presidential debate, the first between hillary clinton and donald trump.
